Re: boil water advisory. what do?

It still tasted kinda funny after boiling a while and filtering, so we filtered it again and it seems better.. IDK if we should filter more than twice?

Problem is absolutely *anything* could be in the water if I understand the issue right. From my understanding untreated runoff water is mixing with treated water and being pumped thru the pipes out to well, everyone on municipal water.

Boiling would only kill microscopic organisms. It wouldn't do anything about road chemicals or dirt or whatever else might be in there.

May or may not be "abundance of caution", but I'd rather overreact than underreact to this sort of thing.
